Ikiru in English means To Live

A Japanese film that tells the story of a man who lived his life as the loyal servant of a bureaucratic system mired by red tape so thick that time practically stood still and almost nothing ever got done. After being diagnosed with terminal cancer he finds himself examining what he did with his life. This movie makes my all time favorite, TOP 5  List. It is a must see. The director Akira Kurosawa is a master story teller and the performances are extraordinary. These are the kind of film makers and human stories that inspire and make me so excited about the new Arnold Sports Film Festival that will be launching in 2011.  Watch this movie and “Ikiru” anew my friends.   xoxo Denise
